FMS167 & CMCC51... Hanging Mittens

Hi everyone,

I am playing along today with this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  The colors I chose are this week's Colour Me combo.

My card:

I began with Whisper White card base, and the layers are Always Artichoke and White card stock.  Patterned paper are from my stash - always good to keep those little scraps of paper from other projects.  I created a wintery scene by hanging mittens over some branches, and added fun flock under the mittens to simulate snow.  It's a little bit hard to see on the picture though.  The die cut branches were created with the Memory Box Woodland Branch.  I printed off the digital images onto white cardstock, fussy cut and then colored them with Copic markers.  (sorry, I don't remember where I purchased the digi stamp).

HSS Sketch Challenge... Little Giraffe

Hey friends,
Taking a break from holiday cards, I decided to create a baby card for this week's Hand Stamped Sketch Challenge.  The card base is Whisper White and the layers are pretty patterned papers from DCWV Dot Stack Paper Pad.  I used the Create a Critter cricut cartridge to cut out the cute giraffe.  I then used some yellow and white Baker's Twine, wrapped it around the card twice, then added a small bow to the left hand side of the card.

CMCC... Christmas Card

Hi Friends,
**Please note that I did not turn on Word Verification.  For some odd reason, it will pop up when you leave a comment.  Some of my other blog friends have encountered the same problem**
Last week. I purchased some new stamps from my local craft store, and I just had to break them in.  I decided to create a card using the new palette from Colour Me Challenge - Night of Navy and Silver.  Such an elegant combo!
My card:
The card base is Whisper White, and the layers are Night of Navy and pretty patterned paper from DCWV The Twinkle Glints Paper Stack.  Not sure if you can see it, but the diagonal lines have a shiny silver to it.  My new stamp is from Hero Arts called Joy Burst, and was heat embossed in silver embossing powder.  I really like how the image stands out.  I hope you like it.
I'm also sharing:

Have a fabulous day!

CAS on Sunday...Minnie Mouse Card

Hey Everyone,
Today's card was created for this week's CAS on Sunday Challenge.  This week's theme is children's card.
I had fun putting this card together.  A quick and easy one!  I used the Mickey and Friends cartridge for Minnie Mouse, and an old punch from Martha Stewart for the pretty bows.  I then added a pearl to each bow.  The sentiment is from SU! Button Greetings, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.
